Modern day slavery
The UK Parliament passed the Modern Slavery Act in March 2015 with the objective of consolidating and extending current offences relating to slavery and human trafficking. A provision of the Act is that businesses with a minimum annual turnover of £36 million have to produce a statement setting out the steps they have taken to ensure there is no modern slavery in their own business or their supply chain.

This statement will be published each financial year.
We also have a policy to support the statement.
